Search search search man. All kinds of info. Go read the flame free noob thread, some guys get annoyed at answering the same question a 100 times a day. I assume it's 2wd, so check front end over well, they tend to wear out. drive, try to look at it when you can start it cold, make sure the GP system is good, listen for misses, rough idle etc. How many miles, check for blowby in the motor. But go read, and then feel free to post your findings when you look at it and let us know! Good luck
